We at 100X.VC had the pleasure to host incubators acquainted with Maharashtra State Innovation Society across Maharashtra. The 2nd Day of the Capacity Building Workshop kicked off with Ninad Karpe’ s welcome note to the incubators and an address about what the funding journey looks for startup founders as well as investors.
Post his address, Mithun John, Jt CEO Maharashtra State Innovation Society, shared his take on the work they are doing. He has been actively involved in the startup ecosystem and has executed various initiatives defined under the state's startup and innovation policy. In addition to this he has set up 16 incubation centres, policy for public procurement, EIR, early stage seed fund. This was followed by introductions of the representatives of the incubations we were hosting.
The incubators had the opportunity to attend a masterclass by Sanjay Mehta on the know-hows for investors to evaluate startups. The attendees were able to understand different aspects of an investing journey, what does 100X.VC do and also get their questions cleared.
With a brief understanding of 100X.VC from the previous sessions, Yagnesh Sanghrajka helped them with a short session on the iSAFE, dissecting each of the elements and highlighting the simplicity of its execution.
The morning session wrapped up with a networking lunch.
It was a great experience hosting the incubators as well as folks from the Maharashtra State Innovation Society. Such opportunities help us to work effectively towards our goal to become an approachable discovery platform for startups and their enablers and thus, help them reach greater heights.
